something really matters to me is how to use th expression "at the conrary" could you give me example plzz,,thx in advance,,:_)
I haven't heard "at the contrary" use for "to/on the contrary" either.
However, many of the Google results for "at" go like this:
"To arrive at the contrary conclusion would ... " which, I would suggest, is the correct use.
Did the OP mean 'the other way around'?
The uses of "at the contrary" that I saw seemed to mean the same thing as "on the contrary", but I only looked at a few of them.
yes i meant on the contrary could you please give more examples about it,,:)
